    Too true !

    I was gonna get ike to build the motor for me, but the block

    repairs cost a lot more than 1st expected, so I am screwing it

    back together myself again .

    Still gonna need ike to map it though so I've started saving

    my pennies for that already .

    i think i m going to use a omex600 as i can get one for a fair price, like i say i ve been hearing some very good things about Ike lately and i know Ron rates him highly as both a engine builder and tuner. Nearer the time i m going to go and see him and chris at TOTD and see who can do me a fair deal on the mapping (if there is such a thing!)

    Puddy,

    I have been looking at those 70mm throttle bodies, I was not sure as they do not have prevision for Idle speed valve and also are missing the adjustment screw underneath?

    How will that affect the engine running and are they needed?

    Not done much in the last couple of weeks, but I did do the

    cam timing the other day, used some pretty funky numbers

    that tony at turbosystems had told carlo on p/f who is using

    a very similar set up to mine, bd16's,low comp,t04 etc.

    Told ike and he don't like em , so now I've gotta reset them to

    his figs

    So once I redo them , should be throwing the long engine

    back in !

    Thats nice , you have good taste

    Well funnily enough, here are some pics I took

    today.Cleaned the engine bay ready to fit the motor back

    in this friday.

    Also dropped another saff 2wd prop off at propshaft

    services to be modified as my original one is now too short.

    Got my bell housing back today as well after some thread

    repairs and dropped off my downpipe to have a couple of

    lambda bosses welded on,phewwwwwwww!

    Oh and do you like my new bolts I had made for my vernier

    pulleys to match the big central ones I bought off of

    steve scott ?
